    44 Stocking Stuffers Any Foodie Would Probably Love To Receive

    If they love food, they'll love these.

    1. A ceramic spoon rest that'll save them from creating messes with dirty stirrers and spatulas. It has illustrated cooking conversions painted onto it, so they won't have to do any guesswork.

    2. A shaker of ketchup-flavoured popcorn topper that'll take their favourite movie theatre snack to the next level. Sure, it's designed for popcorn, but they can also shake it on veggies, fries, and pretty much anything else they cook up.

    4. A pair of mini smiley face spatulas that'll help them get every last bit of batter out of their bowl when they're baking. Reviewers love that they're small enough to fit inside jars and cans, so they can scrape out every last dollop of peanut butter or jelly.

    5. An adjustable measuring cup, so that they can tackle a recipe without using a thousand different tools. The interior canister can be used as a plunger to squeeze out sticky foods, like syrups.

    8. A bottle of Canadian-made habanero hot sauce that's a little bit fancier than Tabasco or Cholula (not knocking those, they're amazing). It's not so spicy that it'll singe their tastebuds, but it packs a serious punch in the flavour department.

    9. A dessert-decorating gun with five different icing tips that'll take their icing skills to the next level. Reviewers say it's a lot easier to use and less messy than a traditional piping bag.

    10. An egg piercer that'll help them punch tiny holes in their oeufs before they boil them. This'll help prevent breakage during cooking, and make peeling their eggs a heck of a lot easier.

    11. A set of colourful silicone baking ramekins that they can use to craft mini soufflés, muffins, and more. They also make cute vessels for dips, spreads, and snacks.

    16. A pack of cheese storage bags that'll regulate humidity to keep their favourite fromage from going bad prematurely. Each has space to write what's stored inside and the date they bought it, so they'll never accidentally take a bite of mouldy mystery cheese again.

    31. A five-pack of fold-up nylon totes that'll see them through their biggest grocery shops, without needing any plastic bags. Reviewers say they're a cinch to refold and are sturdy enough to hold a ton of groceries (like, two of these bags hold what five regular grocery bags could carry).

    32. A circular silicone spatula with measurement conversions written right on it, so they'll never have to Google with flour-covered hands again. It's sturdy enough to cut dough, but gentle enough to scrape out pots and pans without scratching them.
